Birds on a wire!

Good evening,

How is it going with the Christmas Prep?  I'm getting there, although I don't actually have too much to do as we are going out for Christmas day.

Today's card is one I did for Paul's show using one of my all time favourite Clarity sets - The Journaling set and the Bird and Flower Rows set

I started with an A4 piece of card and added colour using Fresco finish chalk acrylics.  I picked up the colour with a baby wipe and swished it round the card until it blended.
I cut off a strip at this point (this is the piece behind the birds)
I added a light colour over the remaining piece and waited for it all to dry
Once dry, I did the stamping, I used lots of the background stamps from the journaling set and used the chalk acrylics, I also stamped the flowers from the birds and flower rows set.
On the darker strip I first cut off, I stamped and embossed the birds, and also stamped and embossed them on a spare piece of my background piece, then cut out all the birds and added them over the top of the image stamped on the strip.  Back everything with black card.
I'm off to watch the Strictly final...
Take care
Janet xx
